First look: 2012 Score Football
By Susan Lulgjuraj | Contributing Editor
This year’s Score football card set could feel like a collector’s dream.
The 2012 Score set boasts 400 base cards – 300 veterans and 100 rookies – for one of the most expansive checklists in a football set this year.
But for many collectors the best part just might be the price at 99 cents a pack when it is scheduled to release in July.
Each hobby box will yield 36 packs. The breakdown of each hobby box looks like this: 24 Rookie Cards, 36 glossy parallels 34 additional inserts or parallels.
Some of the inserts include:
・ Complete Players
・ In the Zone
・ Numbers Game
For those wondering about hits, there aren’t many. That’s not the point of Score Football. Panini America has included printing plates, which are 1/1, for the 400-card base set. But autographs only fall at an average of four per 20-box case (Need a previous Score checklist or OPG? Click here).
Score has been around for a long time and is the type of set that appeals to set collectors and children. A fun product for a cheap price.
